Pre-CNY runs

Had one of the more easy runs at SAFRA MF on Tuesday evening. We did a 12km route from Telok Blangah, along Clarke Quay area to Esplanade Bridge and turned back. The stretch to Kim Seng bridge is always full of traffic stops and not very conducive for continuous running. We ran quite a fast pace to Esplanade. We took a break before running back to the ClubHouse.
Distance: 12km__Time: 1hr5min__Pace: 5:25min/km

Took my new ASICS Speedstar for a maiden spin around the estate's 10km route. The shoes felt light, and the forefoot cushion was ample. Enjoyed the run thoroughly, as I concentrated on keeping my strides wider at a steady pace. Finished the 10.5km run in 53min....not bad. Bev finished her 10km in, getting better :)

ASICS Gel Speedstar

Tried the ASICS Speedstar for a second longer run at SAFRA MF on Thursday evening. Instead of joining the main group for Telok Blangah Hill intervals, I turned up to MF via Morse Road. Midway, Bug came up and we ran all the way to the top. I desended along Morse Road and went for the slopes at Labrador Park. It did 3 loops around the Park for good measure, before returning via the Labrador slope. I felt ok throughout, and I maintained a steady stride all the way towards Harbourfront, and then Telok Blangah Rise. Met DO running the other direction near the Morse Road exit. Finished the run in 1.5hr, just in time to meet up with the rest of the MF Runners for a good stretch down, 'brady' fruitcake, and refreshing 100plus.
Distance: 16km__Time: 1hr29minmin__Pace: 5:34min/km
